The kiddo and I went to the local weekend cruise-in tonight. Not a large showing, was only in the 60's, so a little cool for us Texans, and a lot of the regulars are out of town on vacation, but an ok showing. The sun was out at least. Word is a lot of folks are planning on going to Cars and Coffee tomorrow, so pics from that should be better, but as usual, I'll post what my son took tonight.

Oh and after some "comments" here from the group about the "underhood appearence" of a recent photo of my Roadmaster...you know who you are.. Shocked ... I spent THREE HOURS detailing and polishing the engine compartment this afternoon. So I of course left the Cutlass home tonight and went in the wagon.

The best car there was a GORGEOUS 59 Edsel Corsair convertible. First time this one had been out since the restoration, and it's SO sharp.

Anyway here we go!

Not a bad showing for cold weather in the low 60's


Here's the Edsel. For an Oldsmobile sucking a lemon or a Buick with a toilet-seat grill....this was a SHARP car! I especially liked the combination rear-view mirrors and spotlights. The 50's were sure cool!










The green 67 Mustang GTA was there




And the Ranchero was back






I parked the wagon next to that gorgeous 67 Mercury Marauder




And yes I detail the engine bay of my car for HOURS today. Got a lot of good comments...fun stuff!






The silver 68 Camaro was there:


And the yellow Model A pickup hot-rod


Also a really cool original Chevy 10 project truck a kid just got running and back on the road. I like original beaters!



Sun starting to set and that gorgeous green Mustang Bullitt showed up






Along with another hot '05 Mustang GT



And this was different, a VW Corrado with the VR6 engine. I bet this thing flew! The engine looked HUGE in there.



Followed by the other primered Chevy 10 project





And this was funny, a Porsche 924S...have not seen one in a long time



And the yellow '66 Mustang with the nitrous in the trunk showed up






This was an interesting Toyota that showed up...


My buddy Doc showed up in his Maverick just as the cold got to us and I was about to grab Eddie and leave.





Fun but cool evening. Will have more pics sometime tomorrow after we go to Cars and Coffee. And yes I'm taking the Roadmaster. Will try to park it by a Lamborghini or Bentley. ; )

The guy with the black 67 Marauder also has a 67 Marquis. He gave me his card at the last show, which had these links on it. Pretty cool. Enjoy!
